I think I’m about to engage in warfare when it comes to finding clothing. Apparently in Forever 21 standard: I’m a fatty-fat-fatty. I’ll be the first to admit that yes, I’m a little wider now than I was 6 months ago. (And I don’t think that jumping from a size 4 to a size 6/8 is necessarily a bad thing, to be perfectly honest … but that’s likely denial speaking.)
I’m itty-bitty. 5’3’’, as a matter of fact.
10 pounds on this kid and you notice it. (BALLS! Damn genetics!)
I’ve always had “thunder thighs” from many years of riding horses and playing soccer, so really: miniskirts and dresses look pretty awful. Add 10lbs and cellulite, and the result is seriously not pretty. NEXT!
Turns out: it’s hard to find tops that are slimming around my waist yet don’t make my 34E breasts look well, porn-star status.
Dear god, I need shorts that don’t have my gigantic ass-cheeks falling out the bottom. Daisy Dukes are in?? But I’d also like to NOT be wearing Bermuda shorts.
DAMN IT ALL TO HELL.
There has GOT to be some casual clothing that will fit a 5’3’’, 128 lb female.
Of course, when I write it out like that … I feel like a hobbit. Aka: Short. Chubby. Minus the hairy feet.
I left Forever 21 in tears.
Seriously, Taryn? You’re 25. What in God’s name were you doing in a store that caters to high school kids? You know damn well that Express/Limited/J. Crew/LOFT are more your style. Not your pricepoint; but definitely your style.
